Two more things. Аrtifacts occur in the menus of many applications not only in those with right click.
I tried the nightly builds from 20110412.22. There is artifacts on KDE Live, but I can't reproduce the bug with Gnome.
xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.15.0-3.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 15 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.15.0-3.fc15'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
The update fix the problem as expected. You can close this bug.
This new package version fixes probably the problem of KDE users [I don't use KDE applications] but introduces artifacts for GNOME shell users [at least me]. The bottom of every GTK window flickers with black squares when being moved. I didn't have this problem with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.14.0-6.fc15.x86_64.rpm.
xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.15.0-3.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
As I said, the problem is now very strong on GNOME shell with GTK applications when moving them...
laurent is absolutely correct by the way, the 2.15 version is practically unusable vs 2.14 for me, (intel hd 3000) because of the problem described accurately in comment#8
